    Many Many Mees

    I wish for Blackamerica many many mees
    To raise our people up off our knees
    To swarm the enemy like Afrikan bees
    So we can live a human life as we please

    I wish for Blackamerica many many moors
    To teach our people how to open the doors
    To leave the enemy on the killing floors
    So we can breathe freedom through our pores

    I wish for Blackamerica many many deeds
    By Black People growing like righteous weeds
    From words like these spreading dangerous seeds
    So our babies stop crying and the enemy bleeds

    I wish for Blackamerica many many days
    To recognize the evil of this american maze
    And see the true beauty of our Afrikan ways
    So we wont have to set this country ablaze

    I wish for Blackamerica many many mees
